Super Group hereby announces the launch of an equity offering of up to R500 million by way of an
accelerated bookbuild (“Bookbuild”). The new Super Group ordinary shares to be issued (“Bookbuild
Shares”) will be issued under the Company’s existing general authority to issue shares for cash, as
approved by shareholders at the general meeting held on 24 January 2017. Investec Bank Limited
(“Bookrunner”) is acting as sole bookrunner.
The proceeds of the Bookbuild will be utilised to partly fund the acquisitions completed since the 30 June
2017 year end (including Slough Motor Corporation and Servicios Empres. Ader S.A as detailed in Super
Group’s Reviewed Final Results for the year ended 30 June 2017 and released on the JSE Limited’s
(“JSE”) Stock Exchange News Service on 28 August 2017), which have resulted in a gross cash outflow
of approximately R968 million.
Participation in the Bookbuild will be offered to qualifying investors only (as set out in the disclaimers
below) and does not constitute nor is it intended to constitute an offer to the public to purchase or subscribe
for any Super Group shares.
The book for the Bookbuild is open with immediate effect and may close at any time thereafter. Pricing
and allocations will be decided at the close of the Bookbuild. The timing of the closing of the Bookbuild
and the price at which the Bookbuild Shares will be placed (“Bookbuild Price”) are at the discretion of
Super Group and the Bookrunner. Details of the number of Bookbuild Shares placed and the Bookbuild
Price will be announced as soon as practicable following the closing of the Bookbuild.
The Bookbuild is subject to pricing that is acceptable to Super Group and Super Group reserves the right
to amend the quantum of the Bookbuild.
Listing and trading of the Bookbuild Shares on the exchange operated by the JSE is expected to
commence within three business days after the closing of the Bookbuild. The Bookbuild Shares, when
issued, will be fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Super Group ordinary
shares in issue.
